Stained-Glass Quilt

Woodland Orchids

 

Interpretation of a design from Three Swan Studios, entitled "Woodland Orchids."

It is executed in shades of purple, violet, pink, and yellow; encased in a light green lame - a shiny metallic-type fabric.  Used together in this manner, it makes for a delightful contrast in both colour and texture.

A smaller piece, this wall-hanging measures 27" x 27".

 

 

 

Floral, stained-glass quilt

 

 

 

As a finishing touch, the quilt is framed by a traditional Prairie Point Border, using the same colours found in the center floral orchids.  This gives a lovely continuity to the piece.

The  quilt is machine-stitched, and then hand-quilted with silver metallic thread over the dark green border for added contrast.  Like the lame fabric, this gives a shine and glimmer to the piece...especially when the light hits it.
